Re: [softrock40] Re: USB Setting ERROR
- Mike:Sorry if I added to the confusion.My logic was in response to your earlier comment that you could not get Rocky to "see" your on-board soundcard:"The installation of the driver went well. I then (per Robby's
instructions again) loaded and ran Rocky 3.6. I was UNABLE to
select the sound card (VIEW/SETTINGS/ AUDIO/I/Q INPUT DEVICE)
to satisfy what his documentation asked for; In my case, I have
the EMU-1212 sound card installed; I have only
"01 E-DSP SAVE [EE00]" as the single selectable item."That sort of response in Rocky is usually - in Vista - due to Rocky's unfamiliarity with Vista's new approach to the soundcard API.TX ES 73

I am unable to follow your logic, as my skills are just not that
great. -But the ideal sounds good to me! But, I do have an ace
that I might be able to play, by loading the PowerSDR_sr40
application onto a second hard drive, which now has Windows 7 on it!

with Rocky on my Vista machine in the shack, I have to use two
USB soundcards: 1 soundcard (the SB Live 24 which provides my RX
and TX IQ lines ( RX on the line in and tx on the line/speakers
out) and 1 soundcard of lesser quality whose sole function is to
make the demodulated audio audible!
I do have a USB-based sound card on hand, so I could duplicate your
plan to some degree. But, the issue is not (again) dealing with the
audio path in/out of the computer; The problem is that the PowerSDR
sr40 application has hickuped as a resut of me selecting the USB-I2C
device. From that point on (after I shut the application down), I
have been unable to make PowerSDR_sr40 load or run. (I am getting
the DLL-load failure collection of excuses, as I had described earlier.
